Married by Mom and Dad is a reality TV show that aired on TLC back in 2015. The concept of the show is that parents play matchmakers for their adult children, in the hopes of finding them a spouse. It follows four single individuals, including Emily Rhoads, Matthew Trammel, and Britt Ogonofski, who have agreed to let their parents choose their future partners.

The show starts with each participant sitting down with their parents to discuss their dating history, preferences, and deal-breakers. The parents then create a profile of their child and start searching for potential matches. They meet with potential partners and their families and narrow down the list to one person they think would be a good match for their child. The child then meets with the potential partner, and they decide whether or not they want to get married.

One of the show's participants, Emily Rhoads, is a 29-year-old former beauty queen from North Carolina. She had been in a long-term relationship that didn't work out and was looking for someone whom she could see herself building a future with. Her parents, who own a vineyard in North Carolina, were keen on finding her a partner who could share her passion for wine and the outdoors. They eventually found a match in a man named Mitch, who was a 35-year-old businessman from California.

Matthew Trammel, another participant on the show, was a 27-year-old entrepreneur from California who had never been in a serious relationship. He was looking for someone who shared his Christian faith and had a good sense of humor. His parents, who were both ministers, were searching for a woman who had a strong faith and a calling to serve others. They eventually found a match in a woman named Marivic, who was a 28-year-old nurse from the Philippines.

Britt Ogonofski, a 27-year-old event planner from Massachusetts, was tired of the dating scene and was ready to settle down. Her parents, both of whom are doctors, were looking for someone who was ambitious, intelligent, and had a good sense of humor. They eventually found a match in a man named Ryan, who was a 33-year-old engineer from Michigan.

Throughout the show, viewers watched as each participant got to know their potential partner and struggled with the decision of whether or not to get married. Some of the participants were more enthusiastic about the process than others, and there were moments of tension and doubt as they weighed their options.

The show also explored the dynamics between the parents and their children, as well as the potential partners and their families. There were moments when the parents' choices were questioned or when their children were hesitant to follow their advice.

Overall, Married by Mom and Dad was an interesting concept for a reality show, as it explored the idea of arranged marriages in a modern context. It was intriguing to watch as the participants navigated their way through the process and tried to find love in a unique way. While the show only aired for two seasons, it was a fascinating glimpse into the world of arranged marriages and the role of parents in finding their children a partner.

Married by Mom and Dad is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (20 episodes). The series first aired on December 13, 2015.
